More than 120 volunteers from Royal Caribbean will donate personal time this Saturday to help paint and landscape Centennial Elementary School in Springfield, Oregon as part of the company's 15th annual G.I.V.E. Day.
G.I.V.E., which stands for "Get Involved Volunteer Everywhere," is a community service event that brings together Royal Caribbean employees, their families, friends, vendors and business partners to assist non-profit organizations and improve the quality of life in their local communities.
Royal Caribbean Chairman Richard Fain commented on the support Royal Caribbean is offering to the community, "As one of the largest non-Government employers in Springfield, we are committed to supporting and helping our local communities. We hope that the personal satisfaction and enjoyment of assisting our neighbors on G.I.V.E. Day will help inspire our employees to pursue volunteer and public service opportunities throughout the year."
Similar G.I.V.E. Day events took place in South Florida, Wichita, Kansas and Seattle, Washington and are planned for Anchorage, Alaska, United Kingdom, Germany and other International Offices.
